I made a trip to Chicago to go see Kalafina perform live with almost the full band and was not disappointed. Still really happy from the concert and from getting a few albums signed.
asdfasdfadf SO JEALOUS! I love Kalafina's music!
The Sakura-Con anime convention event in Washington always has concerts featuring artists from outside of America. This year they had Eir Aoi and Luna Haruna (Fate/Zero and Sword Art Online songs), last year they had Stereopony and Moi dix Mois, two years ago they had exist†trace and Berryz Kobo, three years ago they had Dazzle Vision and HIGH and MIGHTY COLOR.
Most, if not all, of these featured artists have never come to America before.
You were so close to Chicago as well! I found out about them being a guest at the Anime Central convention. However, what sealed the deal for getting me to make the trip was that they would be performing in a nice venue with most of their band. I only planned out the trip about three weeks ago and made a whirlwind vacation around the Kalafina concert.
Does anyone know if there's a different version of this song? It sounds....so familiar but I can't place my finger on it. *I don't think it's the Mandarin version of the song either*
Ha, I figured it out. I don't think there's a video of it on YouTube, but the Okayama Sanyo High School performed it at a local high school way back ago.
Don't think I saw anyone post this up yet. If anyone remembers Lexy, CL seems like she is even more Lexy than Lexy in this video! I am pretty sure Teddy produced this as it has his style all over it.
YG Entertainment actually started by bringing that fake gangsta style to Korea in the late 90s. They didn't really get it right until around 2000. So for me, the CL vid makes me kind of nostalgic for the old YG singers that my friends and I loved in highschool/college. Back in those days Cypress Hill was actually on a YG album and they really wanted to take one of their main producers to work with them in the US (Perry). Glad he stayed :)
